  2. It gives meaning to love, humility and family, especially to people who live under the same roof.
  3. It generates the deepest feelings of love between couples and families, giving meaning and strength to the bonds between father, mother and children.
  4. She is the goddess of the sea, patron saint and protector of the shipwrecked, mother of all human heads, the very womb of the world.
  5. It represents the majesty of the seas and its energy is immense as the owner of the oceans, and the salty waters.

A way to perpetuate their traditional cults without the intervention of their masters, who did not tolerate and considered such "pagan manifestations" unacceptable in their lands.
